Who are TOP MEDIA’s newest boy group MCND?
The 5 member boy group consists of Castle J, BIC, Minjae, Huijun, and Win. Debuting under TOP MEDIA, MCND began their journey on 27 February 2020 with ‘Ice Age‘. They also released a pre-debut single, ‘TOP GANG‘, on 2 January 2020. Their name is an acronym for – Music Creates New Dream.
About ‘Movin’ (너에게로…)’
The song showcases a continuous flow with MCND’s previous comebacks while still keeping a fun and fresh perspective of the group. The trap beats and the hip-hop centred instrumentals are something they have done quite a few times before.
However, they never seize to surprise how unique and talented their rappers and vocalists are.
Their title tracks are always more chaotic than sticking to a specific message. The ‘너에게로‘ in the title translates to “to you” which explains the lovesick words and that they are moving to reach someone they love. A specific part of ‘Movin’ (너에게로…)’ that reels you in is the pre-chorus:
“Now I’m dreaming youmcnd – ‘Movin’ (너에게로…)’
A familiar light passed by
You’ll find out why I’ll meet you
Don’t forget, wе will become one“
It’s perfect with the chorus that’s more a mix of a silent dance break with catchy lines. It’s an anthemic chorus that contrasts the intimate and suggestive lyrics. Overall, MCND has established their own key sound and hopefully will attract a bigger audience.
In all the frenzy of the song, the music video falls a little short but it’s still enjoyable with lively choreography and vibrant sets. It mixes juvenile settings with some futuristic aesthetics. It heavily references the album’s name as they look like they are on a secret mission.
